18. One last "smash and grab" before the "demographic window" closes on them?
Edited on Wed Apr-20-11 01:21 PM by Proud Liberal Dem
or an attempt to finally establish a corporate monarchy/dictatorship in this country? I dunno. I though that Chris Rock's explanation of them being a bunch of unruly kids acting up before finally going to sleep was pretty good. :shrug: I'm guessing that by being as brazen and bold as they are, that it's more the former rather than the latter (or the Chris Rock suggestion would work too) because you're not going to be able to get everybody to follow your rule if you're basically doing everything you can to attract attention and honk people off because when people are honked off, they're not being complacent and they're certainly paying attention to what is going on. It's only taken, what, 2-3 months for people to, at least according to the polls, turn against the psychotic Republican stepdads in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, etc and the House GOP?
